The “Amsterdamse Waterleidingduinen” (Amsterdam Water Supply Dunes), located on the outskirts Zandvoort, form one of the most beautiful nature reserves in the Netherlands.

The “Amsterdamse Waterleidingduinen” have the largest population of fallow deer in the Netherlands. If you take a walk through the reserve, chances are that you will come across a buck or doe.

The dunes are perhaps at their best in the autumn: not only are the colours beautiful, but it is also the best season to spot deer. In the early morning or at the end of a beautiful autumn day you can hear the barking of the bucks echoing through the dunes. If you’re lucky, you’ll see two bucks locking antlers. In the spring you may see does with their fawns.

Don’t forget to take your binoculars and camera with you when you head into the dunes. Make sure you never disturb the deer and keep a good distance.
